Who’s Who Member update via Moredale Concerts

Did you know Mooredale Concerts has been a fixture in the Toronto classical music scene for 29 years? Patrons and subscribers tell us we’re a best-kept secret presenting first-class chamber music in an intimate setting, and at low prices. If you missed us for our first three concerts this season, we have three more that are sure to delight.


January 14 Piano Dialogue, David Jalbert & Wonny Song  “… are evenly matched in virtuosity and temperament, with a similar hefty sound, snappy rhythmic attack, and feeling for the orchestral possibilities of their combined instruments.” – Artsfile.ca Dec 4. They dazzled the Ottawa audience with their theatrical performance of Rachmaninoff (Suite No. 1), Milhaud (Scaramouche), and Stravinsky (Pétrouchka). Cleanse your post-holiday palette with this lively two piano concert.


February 18 – Paul Huang, violin and Helen Huang, piano  Taiwanese-American Paul (age 27) is emerging on the world stage, invited by Valery Gergiev to perform this season with the Mariinsky Orchestra. Helen (no relation) has performed with several major orchestras including the New York and London Philharmonic. Together they perform an ambitious program – Dvorák, Prokofiev, Cyril Scott, de Sarasate, ending with Saint-Saëns’ Violin Sonata No. 1 in D minor, Op. 75.


April 15 – Forestare Ensemble  This unique Québec-based group comprises 12 guitars and two double basses, who do their own adaptations and arranging. They will perform works from their acclaimed CD Baroque, by Lully (from Le Bourgeois gentilhomme), Vivaldi (Concerto No. 2, RV578), and J.S. Bach’s Brandenburg Concerto No. 3 in G Major, BWV 1048. “Forestare has managed to create a sound that is distinct…The effect created by this mass of guitars…is quite simply striking.”- La Presse.

Tickets are $40 (Jan 14) and $30 (Feb 18, Apr 15); under age 30, tickets only $20. All seating is general admission so patrons get their personal choice in location. Performances held at Walter Hall, Edward Johnson Building, University of Toronto, 80 Queen’s Park Crescent (Museum subway), Sundays at 3:15 pm (Concert Series) or 1:15-2: 15 pm (Music & Truffles).
